Ireland’s first small-batch Spiced Rum

Anchor Spirits Ireland, Waterford’s boutique beverage company, has created Ireland’s first small batch spiced rum. 

Spike Island Spiced Rum is the latest addition to the increasing range of premium alcohol being made on the Island of Ireland and the third drink in the Anchor Spirits portfolio.

The premium quality rum, imported at cask strength from the Caribbean, is hand-spiced in the barrel and cut with Irish spring water to bring it to 40% ABV.  There are nine different spices at work and it takes up to six months for the blend to marry with the rum.

The result is a smooth-tasting sipping rum with a warm kick to the finish. Spike Island Spiced rum has already caught the imagination of several mixologists and the Spike Island Spiced Rum cocktail recipe book is growing rapidly.

The brand has also just signed a deal in collaboration with Dublin Rock Band Samarkind whose debut album featured in the top 10 Rock Albums out of Europe in 2017 and is being launched in Ireland on March 8th at Flanders Bar in Bruxelles on Harry Street in the heart of Dublin, just ahead of Samarkind’s UK tour.

Anchor Spirits Ireland began trading in December 2013 and is responsible for the multi-award-winning Thin Gin and Muldoon Irish Whiskey Liqueur.
